Default Cold Eagle

I saw this eagle this morning going pig hunting, he was HUGE, probably close to 3 feet tall.....I think its a Golden Eagle, based off the size I dont think it was an immature Bald eagle....

Great find. I'll defer to our bird experts on what it is. Thanks for sharing.

Neat find. I'm pretty sure it is an immature Bald Eagle. The Golden has a generally brown appearance even as a juvenile.
